  • it sure helps. I don't feel too sexy if I'm not feeling pretty.

  • No i don't. Even if I dont feel sexy once we start touching and kissing and..well you know the rest...I don't care how sexy i do or don't feel! Now I usually don't initiate it if I'm feeling blah. But if he initiates it I try to get in the mood.

  • I think you do. If you don't feel sexy or think your partner doesn't really find you sexy ( which if you don't find yourself this way, you might think your partner feels the same) then you might never fully relax and be comfortable in your own skin.. which leads to an "unsatisfying sex life".

  • I think it definitely helps because you feel more confident and will do more things without being shy..
    Like just stripping naked and letting your DH/SO see your goods in full rather than hiding in the dark afraid a fat roll might be seen. lol.
    Confidence can really turn a man on.
    Don't worry though, I don't feel sexy nor do I feel confident about my body and doing things that are "sexy" so if you feel that way you're not alone. Instead, I just act submissive and play hard to get.

  • I enjoy sex better if I feel clean, like having had a recent shower. I enjoy sex less if I feel fat or stressed out.

  • I do and i believe it helps alot. If i feel like crap (i havent yet lost all of my baby weight and im pregnant again) then i just cant seem to want to do anything. He can usually sense when somethings wrong, turns it around then we... well.. nevermind.
